Characterised by renewed hope, developed confidence and improved skills, the programmes that we offer give people the chance to grow, expand their horizons, and become agents of change in their own community. We focus on empowering and enhancing the lives of those people most isolated and vulnerable, building their confidence and helping them to learn new skills, so that they may fully live their lives and become a part of their community.
On our 21st birthday, we want to celebrate the impact LifeLine Projects has had; on people’s lives, on our local community, and on our national systems.
As part of our 21 in 21 celebration, our SW!TCH Minds team are collaborating with Havering Council to host Positivity Breeds Possibility 2021 #PBP2021 – a free online event for young people with live performances of rap, gospel, and spoken word, plus educational content on mental health, as part of the Council’s #BeNiceToYourNoggin mental health campaign.

Who We Are
LifeLine Projects was founded in 2000 by a group of volunteers in East London who saw a need in their local community. Realising that they could be part of the solution, they began working with isolated and marginalised women. Since then, we’ve grown from a small organisation with just two part-time members of staff, to one of the larger community-based social enterprises in the capital. Over the years, we’ve worked with numerous organisations to deliver many public-sector-funded programmes, and we’ve received several awards recognising the fruits of our programmes and been short-listed for many more.
